I read that currently no appetite surpressing medicines seems to work for Prader-Willi (I bet they haven't tried MDMA for legal reasons, but MDMA
does enhance the serotonine transport (=genetic defected in prader-willi) and gives the user a feeling of "satisfaction" / wholeness/ fullness ).
Prader-Willi are the ultimate chocolate cravers seeking to get their serotonine flow going...
Only consistently putting a lock on the fridge works, but many mums don't do this because their children start to get really nagging/annoying, they
rather keep them "sweet" with food.
Also note, how many SSRI, such as Prozac tends to make many non Prader-Willi people obese and have low sexual drive, for dulling the flow of
serotonine....It takes away the extreme moodswings but all the fun as well....
Another symptom is low muscle tone and slight retardedness. The weak muscletone promotes sedentary lifestyle and lower metabolic rate, aggrevating the
obese effects of their food additiction.
Well, If I was a Dr. , knowing that surpressing their food intake is very hard, I rather would give them steroid cycles to improve their muscle tone
and have them engage in very exhaustive sports, wich will burn those calories, turning that 300 lbs of blob into 250 lbs of rock hard muscle,
prader-willi linebackers team coming soon!
